Back with Baltimore

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-19

The Ravens signed Gordon to the practice squad Friday.

Gordon was cut by Baltimore earlier this week in order to make room for Dalvin Cook, who is expected to be active behind Gus Edwards and Justice Hill against the Texans. Gordon can't be elevated for Saturday's game.

Could re-join practice squad

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-18

Gordon, who the Ravens waived Wednesday, is a candidate to re-sign to the team's practice squad, Jamison Hensley of ESPN reports.

Gordon lost his spot on Baltimore's practice squad to fellow veteran running back Dalvin Cook. Still, Gordon is reportedly considered a likely candidate to return to the Ravens' practice squad, giving the team a bit more veteran depth in the backfield for the playoffs. He suited up in a reserve role for four regular-season games with the team, compiling 81 rushing yards and one touchdown on 26 carries, plus one fumble.

Waived by Ravens

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-17

The Ravens waived Gordon on Wednesday.

The move frees up a roster spot for the likely promotion of Dalvin Cook from the team's practice squad to join a backfield that also includes Gus Edwards and Justice Hill. In four regular season games with the Ravens, Gordon logged 26 carries for 81 yards and a TD and added three catches for 46 yards.

Scores late touchdown in romp

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-02

Gordon had six carries for 10 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.

The veteran was elevated from the practice squad in Week 16 following Keaton Mitchell's season-ending injury. Gordon did not get in on the action against the 49ers but did factor into the box score in the blowout win over the Dolphins. He ended up seeing twice as many carries as Justice Hill, though it's worth noting that Gordon did not get into the game until garbage time. With Baltimore having the No.1 seed sewn up, it's possible that Gordon will have his largest role of the season in Saturday's season finale against the Steelers.

Joins Ravens' active roster

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-19

The Ravens signed Gordon from their practice squad to the active roster Tuesday, Clifton Brown of the team's official site reports.

Rookie halfback Keaton Mitchell went down with a ruptured ACL on Sunday, and Baltimore promptly promoted Gordon to reinforce the position. In two games with the Ravens earlier this season, Gordon took 13 carries for 53 yards, adding three catches for 46 yards on three targets.

Set to join 53-man roster

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-17

Head coach John Harbaugh said after Sunday's win over the Jaguars that Gordon will be added to the Ravens' 53-man roster this week, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

After Keaton Mitchell was believed to have sustained a season-ending knee injury during Sunday's win, the Ravens need additional backfield depth. Gordon appeared in two games for the Ravens earlier this year and rushed 13 times for 53 yards while securing all three of his targets for 46 yards. While Baltimore still has Gus Edwards and Justice Hill available out of the backfield, Gordon could have a chance to carve out a role down the stretch.

Returns to practice squad

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-02

Gordon reverted to the Ravens' practice squad Monday.

Gordon was elevated to the active roster for a second week in a row prior to Sunday's 28-3 win over the Browns, rushing for 21 yards on three carries while also reeling in his only target for a 23-yard reception. The running back could play again in Week 5 versus the Steelers, as he still has one more elevation before he'd need to be signed to the Ravens' 53-man roster.

Four touches as Gordon, Hill play

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-01

Gordon rushed three times for 21 yards and caught his only target for 23 yards in Sunday's 28-3 win over the Browns.

Gus Edwards avoided entering the league's concussion protocol after exiting in Week 3 while Justice Hill (foot) suited up after sitting out Week 3, so Gordon was part of a three-man running back rotation. Edwards led the way with 49 scrimmage yards on 15 carries and three targets, while Hill (three carries for 33 yards) split change-of-pace duties with Gordon. Perhaps Gordon's efficiency in this one will earn him more touches in Week 5 against the Steelers, but the veteran running back's ceiling remains capped as long as he's limited to a rotational role in Baltimore's busy backfield.

Promoted to active roster

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-30

Gordon was elevated to the Ravens' active roster Saturday.

Gordon saw his first action of the season in Week 3 against the Colts when he rushed for 32 yards on 10 carries while adding two catches for 23 yards. This is the third time he has been elevated from the practice squad, which means that the Ravens would have to sign Gordon to their active roster if they wish to play him for the rest of the season. He's set to take on the RB3 role for Sunday's contest against the Browns with Gus Edwards out of the NFL's concussion protocols and Justice Hill (foot) trending towards playing in a crucial divisional matchup.
